COPD. I have been using plantain (the weed, not the banana type plantain), also known as white man's foot, rats tail, broad leaf & long leaf, among other names, for about 18 months. I pick it, wash it thoroughly, using the whole plant including the roots, dry it & freeze it. I take a small handful, pour boiling water over it, cover & let it stew for at least 24hrs, sometimes longer if I make up a few pints. I then strain it, hold my nose, as it doesn't taste the best & drink about half to 3/4 of a pint a day. It took 3 to 4 weeks before I noticed an improvement. My breathing is so much better and I am no longer "wet" in my lungs. I even forgot to take my inhalers a good few times. I didn't have the flu injection this year. I have not had one chest infection, didn't get the Australian flu or any other flu or cold over the winter, even though everyone else in my home did, usually I am the first to get anything going around. I have not been ill once this winter.
A family member rid his tooth abscess using only plantain.
My Mum has been using it for her COPD symptoms for the past 7/8 months. Not only has her COPD improved, she has said it really helps with her arthritis!
Oh my god....I cannot believe that the UK has FG H202 designated as a criminal offense resulting in JAIL?? What is happening to this world folks!! This is deplorable to say the very, very least!! I am so disgusted at the constant attempts to control everyone's lives - especially since the wonderful internet has opened our eyes to so much, thank god!! I love FGH202 - have been very ill and must just get myself to use it regularly as part of my daily routine. Love you Earth Clinic - you are a GIFT to society at large for all the invaluable information found on this FANTASTIC site. Blessings of the Universe to you all.
I did know that 35% FG H2O2 was not available in the U K without a license, or other documentation, But a jail term, how backward thinking is that! I have been using the H2O2 therapy for twelve months now for COPD, with wonderful results. A few months back I signed up on a British lung forum where many people suffered from COPD. I related my experiences with H2O2 Therapy, The negative responces some bordering on the hostile, almost branding me a crank and a liar convinced me that the British have quite a long way to go before they see the light! I never returned to that site.
Asparagus and Cayenne Treatment
25 days on asparagus and cayenne pepper. Last night I played 3 games of darts with my wife without huffing and puffing every time I walked to fetch my darts out of the board. I will keep you updated on my improvements.
I just got diagnosed with c.o.p.d. I was born with asrma bronchitis and hay fever; am on cardezam 360 due to atrial fibrilation taking symbicort low dosage. Told most c.o.p.d. patients live 25 years. Trials and research talk most of the time is unreliable, for example t.b is cured with gold collodial yet we are told there is no cure. If the ama or pharmacuetical board cannot get a patent, then they tell you what you're taking is wrong. The 1936 medical journal supported gold collodial use. The ama had the fda refuse to let the collodial continue because no money could be made.
Do you know if colloidal silver has any affect on c.o.p.d.? I also am on warafan for my blood clots I take 400 mg. daily of magnesium , tuna fish and sardines. Does this help at all? I also walk every day until I get tired. Any advice would be well appreciated.
I posted two years ago, when I began inhaling H2O2 for COPD. I had been terribly sick for over 15 years and was suffering for nearly six months of the year with chronic bronchitis and pneumonia.
I started with Bill Munro's inhalation method and I am now using between 3 and 5 ccs of .5% (1/2 %) food grade hydrogen peroxide (diluted with distilled water) daily via nebulizer. I have had only two short episodes of bronchitis in two years (and no other illnesses at all)!
I am not a healthcare practitioner, but have been doing exhausting amounts of research and have found a lot of important info I would like to share.
1. You should always use food-grade H2O2 when possible and it should only be diluted with distilled water. (care should be taken when diluting, it is caustic at anything over 3% and WILL burn you). If food grade is not accessible or you don't trust yourself, use the stabilized type (brown bottle), but know that it has additives that can affect you negatively. I used the stabilized type for about a year with no adverse effects and Bill Munro has been using it forever.
2. The food-grade is more potent than the stabilized even at the same diltuion. The dilution I have used (and recommended to hundreds of people) is:
3% stabilized or 2% food-grade for mist inhalation and for anything topical (ears, cuts, etc.).
1% stabilized or .5% food-grade for nebulizer treatments.
3. Many people would like to take H2O2 internally for almost any ailment. I believe it will cure ANYTHING! However, you should know that it is not as simple as putting a few drops in water. There are many foods and meds that interact with H2O2 and you can get quite sick. In "The One-Minute Cure" by Madison Cavanaugh, there is a great chart with dosages and recommendations for detoxing, etc. You can also read about what foods, medicines, etc. to avoid.
4. Speaking of books on the subject, "Hydrogen Peroxide Medical Miracle" by William Campbell Douglass is also a wealth of info. I have also recently downloaded a free Kindle book "Hydrogen Peroxide Miracle Healers From the Kitchen" by Sharon Daniels. It is a short e-book. It appears that this author has condensed other author's info into a quick read. It doesn't really give specifics on how to use H2O2, but it's great for some very interesting facts.
I hope that this info can be posted for others, so that they can take advantage of this amazing and inexpensive cure for almost any ailment out there.
Be well, Maggie
Dealing (and living) with COPD
First, let me clarify. I was a smoker for many years and was diagnosed with emphysema. I am stubborn when it comes to NOT accepting that I cannot fix what is broken, especially my body. After reading the article on Bill Munro and hydrogen peroxide inhalation, I decided I would try it. If it worked fore him, should work for me, right?
Well, I experienced some relief but not what I expected. I went though a period of less stress on breathing. It felt as tho the method was working.
Then after a month or so, I had a terrible infection to the point I thought it was the end. I quickly went for my albuterol because I know after the treatments my lungs open up. Then, after much site hopping looking for suggestions, I learned about L-Glutathione. I suggest you google it and read all you can because its one of the most important proteins in your body (cells). I made several appointments with a holistic Dr. but was never able to keep the appointments because of the distance from me and work schedules.
Anyway, I was able to find it on the net, ordered, and nebulize with one tea-spoon of distilled water per capsule L-Glutathione.
Miraculously, this treatment seemed to giving me the relief I was looking for. Then, I after 1 month, my lungs became infected again (exsaperations, I believe its called.) Anyway, I was fine then became sick again. So, what caused the infections?
I came to learn SUGAR (which is one of my weaknesses )is an infectant. I eat chocolate chip cookies like there's no tomorrow, bad habits are hard to stop. So, I made up my mind, no more sugar.. I must add I walk bout 5 miles a day vigorously. It helps tremendously. I also have a work out program which I use to fit my schedule. I need to do this to keep my mind off cigs. It helps as I haven't touched one in years .If you smoke, Stop. It's that simple, which is not simple, I might add. But I had to convince myself I would die way too soon if I didn't. Now, my next huge hurdle is Sugar....cross your fingers. Thanks for reading...it may help you.
Yes to blowing up balloons! I have COPD and started the balloon regiment, it really does help. I posted this on a group page and others have posted positive results. One guy said that he's blowing up big punch balls with no shortness of breath. Easy and cheap to do. Lots of fun if you have a dog and let the balloon go squeeeeeek when you let the air out.
Hello, I started taking Cell Food about a year ago. I thought.. What can I lose. I am a lung transplant awaiting patient. Been 4 years since my diagnosis and I am still kicking. We are trying to prolong the transplant to give me more lifetime. Since taking this supplement... When you first start taking it.. Your energy level skyrockets like no other. As I stated... I am awaiting transplant so my health should be such that I would be almost bedridden. I can do more than I ever dreamed of. Not able to walk like I used to... But I can do tasks all day with breaks in between. So over all I would say... It is a product I have been known to stop in public when I see a person on oxygen and give a referral to try it. That speaks how it works for me. My hair is envied by others. It was brittle and dry before... And now I have had the most beautiful hair that I have ever had in my whole life. I plan on staying on this supplement until the doctors tell me to not take it.
After the transplant I dont know if they will allow me to take it. But it dont hurt to try to take it now. When I was given my diagnosis, I was told I have the lungs of a 90 year old person. I am on oxygen ( level 2 liters ) at home and when it is possible I walk small distances with no oxygen. I even was shoveling the snow last year ( 20 inches too ). Good luck to you.
Of interest for COPD and Pulmonary Fibrosis
If you've read posts on EC for any length of time, you are probably aware of how common these two diseases are and how hard they are to treat as they are mentioned often on EC.
This very recent study suggests that pine bark extract (PBE) has activity against both health issues. PBE is one of my favorite supplements and is well noted for its antiinflammatory effects, but studies continue to show other potential health benefits associated with the use of PBE and clearly, it appears that PBE is useful for helping to ameliorate fibrosis in multiple areas of the body and is worthy of being on a list of potential supplements for these two dieases. It is often useful to have a "list" of potential supplements that may be useful in trying to treat a specific disease, because often times a supplement that works well for one person may not do as well for someone else or perhaps that person is not able to tolerate it, so having a "list of options" may offer similar help from another supplement........especially for diseases that are known to be difficult to treat.
Here is a link to the full study:
I'm doing well. Sorry I haven't been on here to reply.
I've had alot of trials and errors. Mainly I've found that the drs almost killed me with all the meds.
I don't take dmso on a daily basis, but I still use about 1 capful a day when I'm sick, along with msm. I also take the Apple Cider Vinegar with baking soda, coconut oil mixed with cayenne, black pepper, turmeric, honey. 3 tbsp of coconut oil and honey and 1tsp of turmeric and cayenne and pinch of pepper. 2 tbsp of blackstrap molasses also daily. I am going shopping, had a garden and keep my grandson a couple nights a week. Thank you earth clinic! You all have saved my life!
Peroxide, Colloidal Silver and Lugol's Iodine Inhalation
I was diagnosed with mild COPD about 3 years ago. I refused all inhalers and told the doctor I would treat myself. I started using Bill Munro's protocol for the hydrogen peroxide. I buy the 3% hydrogen peroxide from WalMart or any supermarket. I put the straight peroxide in an nasal spray that has been emptied of its contents and rinsed really good in hot water. (you can also buy empty nasal spray bottles from Amazon.)
I also do the same thing with colloidal silver and lugol's iodine 2% solution. The colloidal silver is put straight into the nasal spray bottle but I put 2 drops of silver into water that I put first in the nasal spray bottle. I now have 3 nasal spray bottles,
1. with 3% peroxide
2. with colloidal silver and
3. with lugol's iodine 2 drops in water.
I use these throughout the day whenever I feel mucous and congestion building up and 1 hour before bed to clear up any mucous before bed. I also use p73 extra strength oregano oil. I put 6 drops in a empty gel capsule or just put 6 drops under the tongue. This acts as a natural antibiotic that clears up any infection or viruses. I use this two weeks on two weeks off or however you feel.
I no longer have any problem getting mucus up can walk over a mile without any breathing problems. I know that the copd is still there but it just dosen't bother me. The last time I went to the doctor he had me cough and listened to my breathing but didn't comment on the copd. The year before he insisted I take the inhalers.
Just had to share with you. It has been at least 3 years I have been doing this and I have not gotten any worse. The best to you all, Yolanda
P.S.. I forgot to tell you I do use them all at the same time. Took a while to do that doesn't seem to hurt. Sometimes I take one then later take another. Just try it.
I have been trying the 2-1 method with hydrogen peroxide---3% and water in my nebulizer. Helps with my breathing so much. I use it whenever necessary. I want to know how often is too often?
Hey Gabby....... You did it again... you went right back and did the same thing by overdosing. Robert told you slow and easy. You took the max amount nebulized, the max amount of sprays in the shortest amount of time. Where did you read that you could max out both treatments? Baby, do one or the other. Cut your dose and in half, and extend your time between treatments, and love yourself! Dont harm yourself again. This is good stuff that works. It will work for you too!
I have been using 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide for my copd and it has all but gone completely. I put 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a 8 oz glass of water and drink it three times a day adding one drop daily until reaching 25 drops and then staying on 25 drops for 5 days and then working back one drops less each day until I reach 3 drops daily for one week. and then check your status.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
I want Bill Munroe to know that my COPD has responded amazingly to his H202 inhalation therapy. I'm not sure everyone inhales as they spray, but I do, and hold my breath awhile so it can really have plenty of time in there and I don't even count how often I do it. I keep 3 sprayers filled with 3% hydrogen peroxide from Walmart at all times. Nothing in this world could be easier with this most amazing result. I've used it for months now and will NEVER be without it. You're a lifesaver, Bill.
I have used the DMSO in Colloidal Silver in my nebuliizer. I put in a teaspoon or 2 of Colloidal Silver and then add a few drops of DMSO. It is always my last resort. haha I breathe it in and if I don't cough enough I add more DMSO.
I know when I have enough DMSO as it will will make me cough up sputum that I hadn't been able to get up before. I only have Asthma. But, I read about the use of DMSO for COPD in Chile probably 20 years ago.
They claimed a cure for it that time, and, I've not read anything different since. I wish our medical community was more open minded about "what works" than just what the big pharmaceuticals companies want them to push. They don't want us getting well with anything they can't patent and make billions from.
Just be careful that your husband doesn't do too much, too soon. It's always best to start small with anything and work your way up. Good Luck!
Cellfood is made by Lumina Health. I also use their Cellfood Silica Formula. That strengthens the heart, and helps with connective tissues and skin. That is what made my hair and skin nice. The regular Cellfood brings oxygen into your body which transports it into the cells.
Two years have gone by and my health did decline, but only because a doctor did not listen to my pleas that I was having pain in the back area. It ended up being a lung infection. Two times this happend and both times the doctor ignored my pleas. As a result my lung function dropped to needing 6 liters of oxygen and then I have tapered off at 4 liters on my own.
I am currently looking into nebulizing food grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Cellfood is great... And it detoxifies the body as well. I find that if I can keep my weight down and eat very healthy vegan lifestyle... With good amount of protein from green smoothie shakes... that I am prolonging my life.
It has now been 7 years since diagnosis... And I was at the very end of the spectrum when diagnosed. I am still a long ways away from the transplant the doctors say. I am believing that the Lord is doing a healing in me, slowly.
Well, it is Sept 12,2014 now and wondering how you are now doing? How has the VCO continued to work for you? I sure hope you see this comment! I am new to the copd family and am reading everything I can. Please respond....
Buteyko Breathing Method
I would like to tell you about Buteyko breathing method that has virtually eliminated my COPD. I am 82 and was diagnosed over 7 years ago with this. I refused all inhalers and tried other methods for my copd, like inhaling peroxide which helped some but not nearly enough.
I bought a very expensive oxygen concentrator for breathing but while I was trying to figure out how to use it I started searching the internet for help. I came across this Buteyko breathing site and started using all the information I could find on there. It has been two years since I have been doing this and I have never used the oxygen machine. It is in the back of my closet and my kids will have to do something with it. I very rarely have congestion have never been hospitalized and walk a 1mile or more a day. This will eliminate asthma, constipation and a hundred other things. The Best
Asparagus and Cayenne Treatment
I have had COPD for the past 8 years I have started a treatment of Cayenne pepper with Asparagus, 1 tin of Asparagus and 2 tablespoons of Cayenne Pepper, bring to a boil, then liquidise it and refrigerate.
I take 4 tablespoons in morning and evening.
I also doing the Hydrogen peroxide nebulizer down my throat during the day, and blow balloons before bedtime.
I will keep you posted on results. I have to see the Lung Doc on Dec 15. This should be interesting
For my COPD, I use food grade Peroxide. It is 35% so it must be diluted. 1 drop of peroxide to 11 drops of water gives you about a 3% solution. Also, use purified water. I'm using 3 drops peroxide with 33 drops water in a nebulizer. I'm much better than I was. It's not a cure but it sure helps.
DMSO, Colloidal Silver
As far as usage of DMSO in a nebuliser, you'd want to dilute significantly... 5 parts purified water... Distilled... To 1 part DMSO. I've read widely that you should not use Hydrogen Peroxide with DMSO while using in a nebuliser. Posts on Earth Clinic discuss this. Please read them. I regularly use a nebuliser with Colloidal Silver but have not used it with DMSO in a nebuliser. And I regularly use DMSO when I want it to act as a carrier. Also DMSO can be used as described on the Jacobs/60 Minutes/Youtube site.
Also "Ted" who regularly writes on Earth Clinic discussed DMSO relative to use to disolve "tar" in the lungs... But it is his THEORY. Please read him yourself... I don't want to speak for him.
If you do use DMSO in a nebuliser... Only use it once... A few light breaths... And see if there is any problem. Wait for a while... Even hours to make SURE the DMSO isn't causing a new problem. After all, if the lungs starts letting loose the tar (if that's what you're after) then doesn't it make sense to do this VERY gradually?
And one last thing: Do you know that DMSO will penetrate directly into what ever you apply it to? So why wouldn't the DMSO work if just applied (diluted) onto the chest... Letting it go into the lungs via the skin? (Diluted... Or it will sting the skin. ) Just a thought.
